Extraction Of Wisdom Teeth While Still Using Stirrups?
Noon, r nI am 22 years old, I am doing braces treatment, but I have 2 wisdom teeth on the upper and lower right. However, my upper wisdom teeth grew toward the back of my jaw while my lower wisdom teeth grew forward toward my graham teeth. Until now, these two wisdom teeth have not bothered me, but I am afraid of the risk of abnormal growth of my wisdom teeth. Can I do this wisdom tooth extraction while I am still wearing braces?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Teeth that grow abnormally or irregularly direction can have an impact, including tooth pain, messy tooth arrangement, food that is easily caught, causing plaque, and even mouth sores that often occur.
Regarding your question, the indication or permissibility for someone to extract teeth is because:
Untidy wisdom teeth
Oral cavity diseases
The need for treatment with braces
So it is actually okay for you to extract your teeth even though you are still using braces. Because as the last indication, sometimes when someone is tidying their stacked teeth with braces, the doctor feels that the person's jaw is not 'wide' for such a number of neatly arranged teeth. So one solution is to remove one tooth to make room for the other tooth.
But still, you should discuss this with the dentist who has treated you so far. Your dentist will see if the tooth is needed or not based on how your teeth have progressed during braces. And if it is necessary, should it be now or another time.
What is clear, you still have to maintain healthy teeth by brushing your teeth regularly 2-3 times a day with a soft toothbrush, with an upward and downward direction and don't forget to rinse your mouth after every meal to avoid foods that stick to braces. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
